Are there any bolt on kits for the 2007 Spectra Hatch? A half roll cage is preferable, but a roll bar is better than anything. Going to be driving in the mountains a lot and would feel safer with it in there.

Anyone have any roll bars/cages done on their ride? I want pics!

Heres a better question...

I am looking to upgrade my suspension system. I am looking for Coilovers, Struts, and Anti-Roll bars compatible with 2007 Kia Spectra Hatchback.

What brands are compatible with my car? I was looking at the 'Megan Racing EZ Street Coilovers', but I'm not sure if they would work. I thought that coilovers were universal but each car probably differs with mounting and the such.

Links will help.
I have already found these:

Coilovers: Ksport Kontrol Pro Damper System KIA SPECTRA

Strut Bars: ARK Performance Strut Bar KIA SPECTRA

Anti-Roll Bars: No Anti-Roll(Sway) Bars ::crying:: All I can find is manufacturer spec replacement ones.

You can make a relly good looking rollcage out of pcv tubing from Lowes.
Why would ANYBODY want to make a roll cage that would break in 1000's of pieces if you rolled the car????? Roll cages ARE NOT FOR LOOKS!!!!

You are not going to find one premade for your Kia. It's going to have to be custom.

The next question is 'Why would you want one with a 4 cyl Spectra".
This is NOT a high performance cars and they were never meant to be...
You will just tear up the drive train as they are NOT heavy duty parts.
Look for a Camero or something you can abuse...

Not planning on abusing it at all, but I do plan on having some fun with it! I'm just going to put a roll bar in it cause I'm not going to track it, just a little spirited driving. Trying to be safe. Its not all about the power for me anyways, especially in Kia's and I understand that, but that's why i'm focusing a lot of time on suspension too.

You might as well use pvc. The only way a kia will ever roll is if it got broadsided by a locomotive or driven off a high cliff.

Buy a turbonator instead.

you'll have to get a custom cage done. the kia will
take a power hit from the weight of a cage, so be
prepared to do slower "spirited" driving than you do
now, which basically nullifies needing a cage in the
1st place :)

Just when I thought you had the worst idea in the "turbonator" then you come out with a plastic roll cage...........:rolleyes:

Not a full 5 or 6-point roll cage, but even a roll bar? I know it would add some weight but since its in the middle I don't think it would decrease driving ability that much.

you can throw a hoop on it, with a cross bar for a 5pt harness to attach
to. that would be worth a few hp right there.
